It's the middle of fall and we are still cruising!  Tuesday night cruises have been well attended and the venues have been great.  Draggin main was a big hit with a number of our Vettes present to represent our club. Rough estimates seem to indicate that hundreds of cars participated in this fun event.  Will there be a Draggin Main cruise night on Tuesday, November 2nd?  Stay tuned and lets hope for good weather!

Corvette Fun Facts: 
A "toothless" grille and a handsome new "ducktail" gave the '61 Corvette a cleaner look and more luggage space.  Performance remained sizzling, as powertrains were hardly altered.  Sunvisors were new additions and much appreciated.  Base price rose modestly to $3,934 and sales continued to climb to nearly 11,000. 
The Corvette was a genuine TV star by 1961, thanks to the weekly Route 66 television series, in which two young adventure seekers roamed the country in a brand new Vette.  The 1961 styling updates were the work of Bill Mitchell the new design engineer that replaced the legendary Harley Earl.  The distinctive new rear end was inspired by that of Mitchell's late fifties Stingray racer which was salvaged from the short-lived Sebring SS project and was later used as a show car.
A fellow bought a new Corvette and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive.  The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up.  As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw a flashing red and blue light behind him.  "There's no way they can catch a Corvette," he thought to himself and opened her up a little further.  The needle hit 90, 100....
Then the reality of the situation hit him.  "What the hell am I doing?" he thought and pulled over.  The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and examined it and the car.  "It's been a long day and this is the end of my shift.  I don't feel like more paperwork so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go."
The guy thinks for a second and says, "Last week my wife ran off with a cop, I was afraid you were trying to give her back!"
"Off you go," said the officer.
